  • Michelle's husband. Are you there?

  • I am here.

  • President Obama, who's been left to fend for himself this week, appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres

  • Show so that wife Michelle could check up on him while she's away.

  • TV show host Ellen ran down the first lady's list of questions she'd left whilst away visiting

  • China with the couple's daughters.

  • Okay, there's something important I have to do right now. I have a friend named Michelle,

  • and she's out of town this week and she had to leave her husband alone and she wasn't

  • sure how he was going to handle being alone.

  • Appearing via video link, Obama admitted to forgetting to making his bed that morning

  • and leaving socks and shoes all over the house.

  • She wanted to know. Did you make your bed this morning?

  • Uh... That would be no. And when she's out of town, things get a little slovenly around

  • the house. Socks everywhere, shoes.

  • The messy president did confirm, however, that he was still eating healthily - well,

  • that is if you don't count the crisps after the carrot sticks.

  • Have you eaten today, and you taking care of yourself? Did you exercise?

  • I did exercise. I did eat, and I ate healthy and I had some carrot sticks along with the

  • potato chips.

  • And when Ellen broke the news that she had broken his record of the most re-tweets for

  • that Oscars selfie, Obama was having none of it.

  • I don't know if you know this, but I was aiming to break your record of retweets and I apologise

  • for doing it, but I broke your retweet record.

  • Obama later shared the plan he and his wife have hatched if either of their daughters

  • decide to get tattoos - to get matching ones and post a family selfie on Twitter.

  • We will reduce the cool factor of any tattoo. Michelle and I will be right there, and we'll

  • post it so that everybody will be able to see it and we'll say we all got matching tattoos.

  • I suspect that'll be a pretty good deterrent for both Malia and Sasha.

  • How embarrassing.

Michelle's husband. Are you there?
